Nigerian Men To Be Jailed In The US For COVID 19 And Other Online Scams....

Two Nigerians, Nosayamen Iyalekhue and Esogie Osawaru have pleaded guilty to defrauding victims using various online scams during the COVID-19 pandemic.

While Osawaru pleaded guilty November 12,2020, Iyalekhue, 33, pleaded guilty to one count charge of wire fraud on Thursday November 19,2020.

Iyalekhue, a former teller at TD Bank in Norwood, Massachusetts from 2018-2019, was arrested in June 2020 along with 27 year-old Osawaru.

Iyalekhue and Osawaru participated from 2016 in a series of romance, pandemic unemployment insurance, and other online scams designed to defraud victims by convincing them to send money to accounts controlled by them.

They were caught when they started having unemployment benefits deposited into their accounts in May 2020.

To carry out the scams, the defendants used false foreign passports in the names of others, but with their photos, to open numerous bank accounts, and in turn directed the victims to send money to these accounts.

Iyalekhue and Osawaru then rapidly withdrew the victims’ money from various bank branches and ATMs, often multiple times during a single day.

The schemes included collecting unemployment insurance in the name of others during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The charging statute provides for a sentence of up to 20 years in prison, three years of supervised release, a fine of up to $250,000 or twice the gross gain or loss, whichever is greater, and forfeiture.

The defendant is also subject to deportation proceedings.

Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based upon the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling and Joseph R. Bonavolonta, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Boston Field Division made the announcement.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Sara Miron Bloom of Lelling’s Securities, Financial and Cyber Fraud Unit is prosecuting the case

U.S. Senior District Court Judge Rya W. Zobel in Boston, Massachusetts has scheduled sentencing for March 4, 2021.

    1. People that runs our govt from a common State Chairman to the Presidency do worst and you folks have no shame calling them Billionaires? How can a civil servant be a billionaire? Not condoning what they have done but charity should begin at home is all I’m saying

  2. Now their accounts are full of monies?
    Welcome to reality. 😏😏😏

  3. To show you that scammers are just greedy, wicked and lazy, even when they move to a developed country, have a decent job, that evil in them still continues. Scammers and Yahoo boys don't do it because of the "Nigerian situation", they do it because they are EVIL THROUGH AND THROUGH. Come to Toronto and see what Nigerian scammers are doing online, you will be ashamed to say you are Nigerian.

    1. As in eh, very shameful something, greed, wickedness and nothing more. Someone I went to school with here (masters degree sef) was arrested last year for scam. Guy had a job, but naah he wanna buy benz and flex. Or is it the Nig doctors/nurses involved in insurance fraud..high earning people the risk of losing your visa or citizenship. No, just wrong!

    2. God bless you. When we talk they say that there is poverty in the land. Many Nigeria's look for excuses to be greedy even when the society eorks. It needs to change of Nigeria won't get better.

  4. Let them go and spend some time in jail.

  5. It serves them right! They committed the crime, so they should do the time in jail and get deported! What a shame. They've brought disgrace to their families.

    These are the set of individuals after been deported begin to claim that there is nothing in the US it is a waste of time. That they were there for years and nothing dey there bla, bla, bla, bla, bla....

  6. Idiots, better they rot in jail. Thieves

  7. Let them be deported, since they dont know what to do with US papers. Itibolibo x 2

  8. Thank God im not nigerian. And its funny how you have scam running through all your veins yet look down on other African countries. EVERY Nigerian is a scammer. If they have not scam yet, the opportunity has not risen . My wish is my president kick all of you out of our country. Other africans are welcome but born scammers are not.

    What country am i from

    I am from the one yours couke never be.

    Giant of Africa.

    Giant of Stealing 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

    1. Congratulations your earth shattering non-revelation.

      You'll recover from your sickness eventually.
